EULA is an End User License Agreement between Pylo and the final user of MCreator software. This license applies to all users that downloaded and/or installed and/or used or use MCreator mod making software.

Pylo grants you a non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable, limited license to download and use the Software solely for non-commercial use. If your use is commercially oriented, one needs written permission from Pylo in order to be allowed to commercially use MCreator.

1 Limitation of Liability

To the maximum extent permitted by law, in no event shall Company or our suppliers be liable to you or any third-party for any lost profits, lost data, costs of procurement of substitute products, or any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages arising from or relating to these terms or your use of, or incapability to use the software even if company has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Use of MCreator software is at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your device or computer system, or loss of data resulting therefrom.

To the maximum extent permitted by law, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, our liability to you for any damages arising from or related to this agreement, will at all times be limited to a maximum of fifty U.S. dollars (u.s. $50). The existence of more than one claim will not enlarge this limit. You agree that our suppliers will have no liability of any kind arising from or relating to this agreement.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

MCreator does not come with Minecraft Forge included but downloads it on the fly instead. The same thing applies to the Cubik Lite as this is part of our agreement with the software author. 

MCreator uses some third-party toolkits, libraries, and APIs in order to operate. You can find their licenses in the installation directory of MCreator or in its subfolders.

6 Source code

MCreator's source code is our property. You are not allowed to decompile MCreator and use its code or parts of it for any purpose, even for private purposes.

7 Minecraft resources

MCreator uses visual representations of Minecraft blocks, items, mobs and some other elements of the game to ease the creation and explanation of the interface. Names of the game elements and all the visuals, screenshots are the property of Mojang and is not in our possession. Our terms regarding distributing and other terms too don't apply for the files that are not directly our work and are the property of Mojang. Check their license for the license and other legal terms. Minecraft resources can be found in MCreator installation in directories res/arm-maker, res/armor, res/block, res/entity some resources in res/img-maker, in res/material, all resources in res/mob, res/potion, res/sound without sound* files, res/tabs and res/tx. Parts of the resources inside res/gui are also in the property of Mojang. Generally, there is no license from our side and we don't claim ownership of any resource that contains parts of the Minecraft resources or Textures.

Under the term resource, we count textures and other image material with *.png extension found inside res directory of MCreator's installation.

8 Mods made with MCreator

Mods made with MCreator are licensed by MCreator Mod Distribution License. MCreator versions covered by this legacy license (versions below but including 1.8.3) do not add MCreator Mod Distribution License file to the exported mod file and the users do not need to add the license to their mods manually (this part of the license does not apply to the mods exported with MCreator versions covered by legacy license: Each distribution of the exported mod file(s) must retain an unchanged copy of this license file), but other parts of the MCreator Mod Distribution License still do apply

9 Usage statistics

MCreator sends a very basic usage statistics to Google Analytics. Only when MCreator is launched, the OS type, screen size, and MCreator version are sent to the Google Analytics servers so we can get the estimate of the user base and improve the experience by targeting testing more into the specific OS or screen size. MCreator version is sent so we know the number of users per-version and estimate the EOL for specific versions based on this data.
